Anthony Joshua will defend his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles against Alexander Povetkin at Wembley on September 22, his promoter Eddie Hearn has announced.

Josh Warrington realised his world title dream at his beloved Elland Road by upsetting Lee Selby to clinch the IBF featherweight crown via split decision after a 12-round thriller.
Fervent Leeds supporter Warrington was roared into the ring by an expectant estimated 25,000-strong crowd in his home city.
Warrington was a clear underdog with the bookmakers against his Welsh opponent but rose to the challenge in the West Yorkshire cauldron to maintain his perfect professional record and end Selby's near three-year reign as world champion at 126lbs.
Warrington was given the nod by two of the judges - 116-112 and 115-113 - with a third scoring the fight 115-113 in Selby's favour.
Another domestic dust-up may loom for Warrington as the winner of this bout had been heavily linked with Northern Ireland's Carl Frampton, whose next fight has been slated for Windsor Park later this summer.

Amir Khan made a blistering return to the ring by beating Phil Lo Greco by stopping his opponent inside 39 seconds at Liverpool's Echo Arena.
The 31-year-old had not fought for two years, since being beaten by Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in Las Vegas in May 2016, and he made up for lost time by knocking Canadian Lo Greco down twice in the early stages.
Khan, in his first bout on British soil in five years, sent Lo Greco to the canvas with a swift one-two combination inside the opening 30 seconds.
The contest was over moments later as the Briton's devastating hand speed pinned his opponent up against the ropes to ensure it was over moments after it had started.
It meant Khan delivered an emphatic statement to Kell Brook, who was watching on from ringside, ahead of a possible all-British grudge match between the two Matchroom stable mates.
